Numerical modelling of turbulence and sediment concentrations under breaking waves using OpenFOAM®
(University of Plymouth, 2017)
This thesis presents the development of a novel numerical model capable of evaluating suspended sediment dynamics under breaking waves, and is based in the open source Computational Fluid Dynamics software, OpenFOAM®. The ...
Storm Impact and Recovery Along the South West Coast of England
(University of Plymouth, 2018)
Extreme storms are responsible for rapid changes to coastlines worldwide. During the 2013/14 winter, the west coast of Europe experienced a sequence of large, storm-induced wave events, representing the most energetic ...
Sediment exchange between the beach and the inner shelf
(University of Plymouth, 2019)
Embayed beaches are often considered closed sediment cells. Contrarily to this widely spread idea, recent studies suggest that the inability of certain embayments to recover to storms is a consequence of significant sediment ...
Wave and Tide Influence on Headland Bypassing and Shelf Scale Sand Transport
(University of Plymouth, 2021)
Waves and tidal currents resuspend and transport littoral and shelf sediments, and it is important to understand the processes impacting the net transport of sand, with implications for various topics including benthic ...
Assessing the dynamics of soil erosion and sediment transport under increasing land use pressures in East African Rift Catchments
(University of Plymouth, 2020)
State-of-the-art environmental diagnostic tools were applied to further the understanding of the complex spatial and temporal dynamics in land use and land cover change, soil erosion and sediment transport in East African ...
